Liberal Arts 



"College is the beginning of a journey, one 

of self exploration. We find ourselves as 

young adults and attempt to mold into 

future professionals. We are enriched both 

academically and socially, setting into 

motion what we will ultimately become -- 

productive individuals who will all make a 

contribution to better the world we live in. "

Keeping Busy 




The best part about being involved is meeting and working 
with some amazing people. It was very easy to get 
involved. I love every minute of running from event to 
event and planning each activity because seeing so many 
happy faces after the event makes all the dedication and 
hard work worth it.
